Attendance at this year’s Smelt Fry Saturday, May 4, put on by the South Haven Fire Department, tied last year’s record of 651.

In second photo, the guys batter, bread and fry the smelt. The fish was snatched up and eaten as quickly as they could get it on the table. Staff photos by Jean Doran Matua.
